The team at the University of Minnesota said the void is nearly a
billion light-years across and they have no idea why it is there.
I lack a fundamental understanding of quantum reality, but I tend to go with my gut. It turns out to be pretty accurate, which may just be quantum-related in itself.
The UofM should monitor this void carefully. I predict it won’t be around next year. I get the impression that it will spontaneously case to exist (get it? the void will cease to exist) as of late January 2009.
Oddly enough, this seems to be entangled, in string theory-esque fashion, with the obviously non-related departure from office of our president.
A cynic would claim that the gaping void was a quantumly-entangled macrocosm of the president’s cranium, but I’m not nearly that cynical.
I’d probably say it represents the craniums of the Great Unwashed.
Now, how does one prove the non-existence of matter?
